Understanding Collaborative Learning: Small Group Work on Contextual Problems Using a Multi-Representational Software Tool
The interactions of three high school juniors (two females and one male) working together on a series of contextual mathematics problems using a multirepresentational software tool were studied. Focus was on determining how a constructivist model of ...
International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology Vol. 34, No. 6 (November 2003) pp. 887–904
This paper reports a study designed to probe the abstraction ability that US Algebra I students can achieve in moving the concepts rate of change and accumulation between motion and money contexts. The Algebra I students used the technologies motion ...
Educational Studies in Mathematics Vol. 31, No. 3 (1996) pp. 319–37
Reports on a case study of a 16-year-old student working on transformations of functions in a computer-based, multirepresentational environment. Presents an analysis of the work during the transition from the use of visualization and analysis of...
Annual Meeting of the American Educational Research Association 2000 (April 2000)
The purpose of this study was to investigate students developing understanding of concepts related to rate of change. Twenty students first participated in a rate of change curriculum unit as part of an after school math and technology program....
International Conference on Mathematics / Science Education and Technology 1999 (1999) pp. 222–226
This paper discusses the use of an innovative technology, called Interactive Diagrams (ID's), to introduce the ideas of accumulation and rate of change in the context of banking transactions and balances. The study follows one teacher while using an ...
Journal of the Learning Sciences Vol. 23, No. 1 (2014) pp. 47–95
This article analyzes the design decisions of a team developing diagnostic assessments for a learning trajectory focused on rational number reasoning. The analysis focuses on the design rationale for key decisions about how to develop the cognitive...
Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education International Conference 2002 (2002) pp. 1726–1727
The purpose of the PT3 grant Inventing New Strategies for Integrating Technology into Education (INSITE) is to develop a scalable model of a technology-infused educational program for the next generation of middle and high school teachers of...
International Conference on Mathematics / Science Education and Technology 1999 (1999) pp. 231–236
This paper discusses how an interactive diagram (ID) called "Bank Account," which is a Java applet, can aid development and intuition of the idea of rate of change. Exploration with this ID helps to facilitate an informal understanding of...
The concept of an agile curriculum as applied to a middle school mathematics digital learning system (DLS)
International Journal of Educational Research Vol. 92, No. 1 (2018) pp. 158–172
Curricular theory must evolve to keep pace with the implications of the design, use, and effects of deploying and adapting digital curricular resources, especially when placed within digital learning systems (DLS) with rapid feedback and analytic...
